Mid Life Crisis and Mid Life Celebration greetings from Finland.
I’m here, representing the USA at the Master’s Track & Field World Championships.
I competed yesterday against the world’s best 400 meter runners in the 50-54 age group, finishing sixth in the first of seven heats.
My time was embarrassing by my standards, for a variety of reasons, yet my effort to make it this far is completely Gold medal worthy.
It reminded me, as you probably already know, doing our best is really what we all desire.
I vow to do my very best today. A day is a terrible thing to waste.
Carpe diem, jeff noel midlife 🙂
